He was supposed to serve a six year prison sentence for trying to kill his ex-wife. In December he was discharged.
It’s been a while since we’ve talked about former As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis. He’s been serving a six year prison sentence for attempting to hire a hitman to kill his wife. And it doesn’t sound like things are looking up. Today it surfaced online that he’s suing a California medical team for $35 million after developing gynecomastia, enlarged breasts.
When Tim Lambesis’ estranged wife Meggan Lambesis spoke in court about his attempt to kill her, she said she believed he’d been fantasizing about doing it for some time. She quoted one of his favorite lines from the Arnold Schwarzenegger film Total Recall where he shoots his wife and says, “Consider that a divorce.” Pretty heavy stuff — especially since the vocalist has an Arnold Schwarzenegger-inspired band called Austrian Death Machine.
As it turns out, As I Lay Dying won’t be finding a new singer to replace Tim Lambesis. Instead they’re going on hiatus and the remaining members have started a new project with Oh Sleeper guitarist Shane Blay. And wait… there’s more.
Tim Lambesis may be facing nine years in prison for trying to hire a hitman to kill his estranged wife, but he’s still putting out new music. His Arnold Schwarzenegger-inspired project Austrian Death Machine will be releasing their new record Triple Brutal on April 1st (no this isn’t an April Fools’ joke).
